I absolutely loved my time at casa de olas!! It's the kind of place you never want to leave and when you do eventually leave, all you think about is going back. Thank you to the amazing staff and owners Carla and Fred- the place oozes fun, happiness and a guaranteed great time. Casa de olas will remain a highlight...

This place is one of the best places I've ever been! You have a great few over whole San Juan del Sur and a really clean accommodation. The owners Carla & Fred are like mum and dad to every backpacker who comes to their place, they really take care. Every evening there's a family dinner which is normally good food...

I've stayed at this hostel twice. Both times I've gone home with some amazing memories. Carla and Fred are such caring people and know how to show you a good time! Would definitely recommend this hostel to anyone who's thinking about checking San Juan del sur out. :)

My top highlight of my Central American trip. A hostel that offers it all, friendly and accommodating staff, TWO EXTREMELY SUPPORTIVE PARENTS (owners Carla and Fred), buzz- the pet monkey who holds your hand from time to time. Overall amazing experience it was so hard to leave this place. Casa will always be my home away from home <3

This place is the best. Family dinners. Great friendly helpful and fun staff! Monday roasts. Nice pool to chill in when hungover. Relatively good rooms and dorms and accommodations. But the owners Karla and Fred and workers make this place how awesome it is!!!

Beautiful views with the pool overlooking the ocean <3 all staff lovely, and join in with the drinking / outdo most of the guests! Breakfast is included which is great, dinners are also good (make sure you catch the Monday roast dinner). Shuttle to the beach for $5 return and free shuttle to town a few times a day. Perfect...

Casa de olas is a fun hostel with a great atmosphere. It's a party hostel so the music starts during the day and goes til about 2am. Our room was right next to the bar and it was ok. The sheets are almost all made of polyester which makes hot night that much hotter. There was just one small fan...

After going there once on a visa run from Costa Rica I've been back twice, I think it still my favourite of any hostel I've been to. Super nice owners, beautiful view and always good hangout around the pool and family style dinners

Had my 30th bday there for Sunday Funday and had the best time. Do yourself a favor and go! Monday night roasts are the best. Loved it so much that I came back for a second time after I left as couldn't stay away. Only place I returned for a second stay in my whole 2 month trip. Love you...

Hotel was great - lovely team atmosphere. Everyone friendly. Good food. Great hosts. Up a huge hill to get there so be prepared if you're walking with flimsy flip flops! Or alternatively if you're wanting to go for a jog around the area, save some strength for the end!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Casa de Olas, is a unique place to stay, blending the best of Bed & Breakfast, hotel and hostel together to create the Casa de Olas experience. We are situated on a hilltop over-looking the town and bay of San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua. Our location provides endless views over the Pacific ocean with spectacular sunsets nightly. Casa De Olas is designed for the more discerning backpacker and budget travelers who are looking to find an oasis of luxury at affordable prices. In total we have 10 rooms and can accommodate a maximum of 75 guests at any one time. We have dorm rooms that can accommodate from 4-6 people with one room housing 14. Casa de Olas is designed for those traveling on a budget or in groups. All rooms are spacious with en-suites. We think staying a little out of town is the best way to experience all that San Juan del Sur and the surrounding area has to offer. Australian couple Fred and Carla are your hosts bringing a wealth of knowledge from their native land with a long resume in the hotel and restaurant industry. Fred and Carla are warm and always ready to give a recommendation. Take a look at our website, TripAdvisor and Facebook pages to find out more and we look forward to having you stay with us soon. ... more   less
